Coonalpyn Mosaic

This mosaic was commissioned by the Coorong District Council and was part of the multi award winning Creating Coonalyn suite of projects in Coonalpyn, South Australia.

Local artist, Marcia Camac, and I started work on the design in July 2016 and a dedicated team of local volunteers began cutting tiles in August 2016. It was a great pleasure returning to Coonalpyn from time to time over the next year checking on progress and helping out where needed. By November 2017 all the tile cutting was completed and we were ready for installation. It took 5 days (a few of them very hot!) to complete the installation.

Many more people now stop in Coonalpyn to look at the painted silos, the mosaic, and other artworks. The effort put in by all involved has helped keep Coonalpyn on the map and hopefully there's more to come!
